Hello everyone,

Please mark your calendar for our next White Center Business District Mixer meeting on Monday, June 13, 6-7:30pm at the Salvadorean Bakery (1719 Roxbury Ave SW). Light dinner and translation will be provided. We have a packed agenda planned for this meeting:

  1. Hear update from the May 14, 2011 Spring Clean. For the business district, our volunteers picked up liter, planted edibles, painted a mural, and planted shrubs. Does anyone want to lead a regular clean-up for our business district? The CDA can supply trash pickers, garbage bags and gloves.
  2. We will have a robust discussion on a Shopper Card including food guide that the CDA and the Chamber are working together. We need your ideas to design and promote it.
  3. We have designed a Resource Guide for businesses to include important contact info for organizations/government entities that serve small businesses. We need your input to see if it will be useful to you. Are there other information you want to see in there?
  4. We have commissioned a local artist to work with our graphic designer to paint and print an art poster. The theme of this poster is our brand: “White Center – Growing a Global Village”. We will give each of you one to hang at your business. We will have a discussion to follow on what else we can do to promote our business district brand.
  5. We will hear update on the issue of medical marijuana in White Center.
  6. Anyone interested in the idea of opening a bike shop in White Center? With the impending closure of the Alaskan Viaduct, there will be incentives to use alternative transportation. Come hear presentations on both topics.

If you have questions, or want more information please contact Nhan H. Nguyen, Neighborhood Revitalization Program Manager for the White Center Community Development Association, at 206.694.1082 ext 166 or [email protected] (
